I have an Asus A7V133 that comes with a promise controller. My current setup is Primary IDE-120gig WD HD, and the Secondary IDE- Sony CDR. I have an IBM 40gig on my primary promise controller, and the LIteon LTD-163 on my secondary promise controller. When it boots up. It shows that my 40gig HD that is on the primary of the promise controller in ultra DMA mode in mode 5. and it also detects my Lite-on LTD-163 but it doesn't have anything next to it to tell me if its in DMA mode. I am running Windows2K Pro, and I checked to see if I can find out if its running in DMA mode. but I can't tell at all. There are no options to tell. I can tell about the stuff running on my Primary and Secondary IDE, but I can't tell about my promise controller stuff. The reason I am looking is because I am trying to figure out why I am having horrible seek times.
With Nero Speed Test, I am getting,
108ms for Random, 173ms for 1/3, and 800ms for full!
my average speed is 25.73x, and it starts at 15x, and it ends at 33x.
I am comparing it to this website:
and mine is not even close to these values.
I have an AMD 1.33ghz, 512mb ram, sony cdr, WD 120gig SE HD.
If anybody can help. please PM me or Reply. I appreciate any help!
